Default Refridgerator/Couch Wont Fit Through Door?

It seems to me that most fridge/couch are too big to get in through the door. Do you go through a window?

Should know soon - I have a new fridge coming next week and hopefully the new sofa, too! If I have to I will take the dash apart. The door opening is about 30" on mine.

I’ve done one Splendid 2000 two refrigerators one couch alone.
Doable but not on my list to do again.
Remove anything that’s in the door way you don’t want scratched or dented and have at it.
Removing windshield is great if you can get whatever it is up to the opening.
I built a 16’ long ramp and decking in the interior for the first fridge implant.
Easy out easy in.
Went so fast I took the fridge out again just to take pictures. Building the ramp took considerably more time

What bus do you have. Your signature does not include that info. It might help us tell you a little better about how to put those items through the door.

No bus yet. Was looking at a Prevost a few weeks ago and the Prevost forum warned me about their Amana refrigerators. So after lots of searches without finding an answer I had to ask. Kinda crossed Prevost off my list at least for now. Hope to find a BB in the near future but I have to wait till I sell my home.
Thanks all

(My signature has disappeared and Im not sure how to repair it or make it permanent)

OK got it. I thought you were trying to get one in or out of a Wanderlodge. Most Birds will accept a couch or refer through the door. My '93 was probably one of the tightest fits but I still got the old sidexside Dometic out and the new Samsung house refer in. Couches can also come apart and get in and out. Good luck with your search. Maybe John W. will come along an help you with your signature and then you can change it to include a Bird some day soon.

I added a signature for you but you can change it, if you want to, by clicking on "User CP" in the blue bar that's below where you sign in.
